Rounders Bats - To splice or not to splice

A key part of any rounders equipment is the bat itself. Many different bats are produced with different colours, brands and prices but what key features make the difference.

To splice or not to splice - A spliced handle on a rounders bat will take an element of the shock out of the bat to reduce the impact on a players elbow.

Origin of Material - Bats are usually made in the UK or in India. The quality of UK sourced wood has always better of a slightly better quality as a very general rule.

Hand Grip - All bats should have a grip of some description. Historically and still available, a wrapped grip was very popular but rubber grips are being used by most manufacturers.
